Background and Weather Here –
Tempe is located in Maricopa County, Arizona and was once known as Hayden’s Ferry. This city is named after the “Vale of Tempe” which is located in Greece. The population here as of 2017 was more than 185,000. Tempe can be found in the East Valley portion of metropolitan Phoenix. Tempe borders Phoenix and Guadalupe on the West, Scottsdale on the North, Chandler on the South and Mesa on the East. According to the United States Census Bureau, Tempe is approximately 40 square miles in size with a very small portion of that being water. The climate here in Tempe is a very interesting one. It is what is known as a “Tropical and Subtropical Desert” climate. Most places here in Arizona have a “Desert” climate but Tempe is a little different. Typically, in desert climates there is virtually no rain and that really does not differ here. Tempe only receives 9 inches of rain per year. The national average is 39. There is zero snowfall here since the temperature will rarely fall below 40 degrees during the winter. The hottest part of the year here goes from the end of May until the end of September when the daily average high is a staggering 100 degrees. The low for this time is in the mid 80’s. So, the summer months here do tend to get a bit hot. The coolest part of the year here goes from the end of November until the end of February when the daily average high is 73 degrees. The low for this time is just about 44 degrees. The summer months can often see temperatures shoot up to 111 degrees. Since the climate here is partly a desert climate, the air can often feel very dry. That is because there is hardly any humidity in the air since there is virtually no precipitation.
Major Employers and Arizona Mills –
